    there are a ton of great 6 trait sites - kims korner and here is another one

    I taught 6th and currently teach 5th so my kids have heard and know about the traits.
    I start with a review of all the traits. I have posters that we go through. I have them think and share what they already know and remember. Begin journaling with trait of Ideas.
    I focus on 1 trait a week with rubric, picture books, sample writings, 1 paragraph writing. These paragraphs can be graded using a 6 trait rubric. After 2 or 3 traits, we have a week or two of 5 paragraph writing and then combine in the traits learned.
    I see my kids success starting with writing 1 paragraph.
    We had great workshops and resources.
